Présentation de l'éditeur

For the first time, the New York Times bestselling PRINCESS books are available in one ebook.

IT ALL BEGAN WITH PRINCESS, called "Absolutely riveting..." by People Magazine.

The first book in this nonfiction trilogy describes the true life of Princess Sultana, a princess in the royal house of Saudi Arabia where she lives in a "gilded cage" with no freedom and no control over her own life.

The saga continues with PRINCESS SULTANA'S DAUGHTERS called "Another page turner..." by Publishers Weekly. DAUGHTERS continues the extraordinary story of Princess Sultana. Gripping and personal, DAUGHTERS recounts the lonely battle of a Princess who is attempting to secure freedoms for her daughters.

The third and last book completes the PRINCESS TRILOGY, called a "Political rallying cry...." by Publisher's Weekly. CIRCLE paints a horrifying reality for women of the desert kingdom. As Sultana battles for a life of dignity, she saves other women from servitude.

THE PRINCESS TRILOGY is the testimony of a woman of indomitable spirit and great courage.

You have never read a story like Sultana's, and you will never forget her or her Muslim sisters.

A New York Times bestseller, PRINCESS was named one of the 500 Great Books by Women since 1300. It was also an Alternate Selection of the Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club and a Reader's Digest Selection.

Jean's first book based on her eye witness reporting on the invasion of Kuwait by Iraqi troops was an immediate bestseller. Shortly thereafter she became a full-time writer. Her next three books, PRINCESS, PRINCESS SULTANA'S DAUGHTERS, and PRINCESS SULTANA'S CIRCLE, became international sensations as they were the first books to bring to the western world the shocking stories about life for women in Saudi Arabia. Jean is also the author of MAYADA, DAUGHTER OF IRAQ, about the prison experiences of an Iraqi journalist praised by Saddam Hussein; LOVE IN A TORN LAND: The True Story of a Freedom Fighter's Escape from Iraqi Vengeance which tells the story of a beautiful Kurdish woman; GROWING UP BIN LADEN: Osama's Wife and Son Take Us into Their Secret World; and FOR THE LOVE OF A SON: One Afghan Woman's Quest for Her Stolen Child. Her work has been featured in People, Vanity Fair,The New York Times, The Washington Post, The New Yorker, The New York Post, The Sunday London Times, The Guardian, CNN, FOX, NBC, and many other news organizations.

Still traveling the world, Jean has made her homebase in Atlanta, Georgia where she is a passionate animal rights and women's rights supporter.


PRAISE FOR THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER PRINCESS:

"A chilling story...a vivid account of an air-conditioned nightmare..." --Entertainment Weekly

"Must-reading for anyone interested in human rights." --USA Today

"Shocking...candid...sad, sobering, and compassionate..." --San Francisco Chronicle

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Captures the blight of women in the Middle East so well 6 février 2014
Par Jan Heart - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
For me, Jean Sasson is part of a small handful of authors who capture the spirit of the Middle East and the role of women in it. Princess ranks with Desmond Cory's On the Gulf and Marjone Satrapi's Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood, as my top 3 favourite books in this genre.

The power of these novels is in their ability to make you reflect on the events and situation currently in the Middle East. I remember the Iranian Revolution, the hostage crisis, the war in Iraq.... And some of the raw emotions just come flooding back. Having lived in the region from 1977-85, and frequent visits since, I feel a little closer to understanding some of the despair and charm of this part of the world that fascinates us in so many ways.

My father was a university lecturer, and we were living in a foreign country. While I will never truly know how Jean Sasson felt about her experiences there, I can at least get much closer through her novels. My thanks to her for sharing these experiences with us. Sometimes, books of fiction speak louder than anything else you'll read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful to have them all together! 13 octobre 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

I first discovered these books when I was in the 7th grade when the first book PRINCESS, was required reading in my literature class. It was the only book that was equally loved by the males as well as the females in our class. From that time, I have followed the story of Sultana, a Saudi Arabian princess who has struggled for her entire life against male domination. After 9/11, the entire world looked at Saudi Arabia with new eyes and for the first time, news reports gave credibility to Sasson's books about the women of Arabia.
For several years I have been wishing to see a set of these books and finally, it has happened! Yes!
If anyone is interested in understanding the real workings of Saudi Arabia and why so many radicals come out of that country, the Princess books answers many questions.
These three books are not only educational, but highly entertaining. You laugh, you cry, you seethe, you rejoice, all in the course of reading one book. A night of entertainment doesn't come any cheaper than the price of one book!
I recommend these books to any reader, young or old, male or female.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Princess Trilogy 27 février 2003

A fascinating read for any -woman-we Western women are so lucky. I just recently read a new book called "Single in Saudi" by Genia that gives a different perspective on life in Arabia. The young woman in this book got away with all of the things the Princess could not. Both books are a must read for the liberated woman

Jean Sasson's books are an accurate indictment a culture of hypocracy! They reflect the cruel slavery under which the Saudi female population has endured for centuries and should be required reading for all human-kind free to do so. Human rights do not exist for women in Saudi Arabia and as women from other cultures marry into that one they swiftly learn upon stepping foot on Saudi sand they've just surrended their freedom for life!! Having spent time in the desert region I can tell you IT IS a culture of hypocracy!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must Read 27 mai 2003
Par Ashley Mackinder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I got the trilogy set as a gift and only started to read it b/c i had nothing else. Turned out I couldn't put the first book down b/c it is so amazing. Its incredibly honest, it pulls you into Sultana's life and you feel the need for more. I'm currently in the middle of the second book and cannot wait to finish it so i can get to the third.
